Written forty-three years after the end of the American Civil War, a Confederate veteran recalled the blessings of corn throughout his own life and the life of the Americas:

"I am an old Southern planter, past eighty-five years of age, in perfect condition as to mind and health, have lived on cornbread all my life, and feel that I can speak intelligently on the much-mooted cornbread question."

"During the war I commanded the 1st Arkansas Regiment, consisting of twelve hundred men, and during the four years we never saw a piece of bread that contained a grain of wheat flower. We lived entirely on plain corn bread, and my men were strong and kept the best of health..."

"Going back a couple of hundred years, we find that this country was originally peopled by a strong, healthy race: the Indians, who subsisted entirely on corn."
